Target: Ruby Shorrock, Creator of Trusty Paws Clinics
Goal: Thank Dr. Shorrock for offering free veterinary care to homeless pets.
For many homeless citizens, being able to care for sick or injured pets is an ordeal. Many do not have the resources, and may fear discrimination or judgment. However, Ruby Shorrock, a veterinarian in Glasgow, Scotland, has devised a way to help these animals and their owners. She started up Trusty Paws Clinic, which gives free care to homeless pets by utilizing local veterinarian students and funding from donations.
Not only is this a great program for the homeless animals that would otherwise go untreated, it also gives veterinarian students hands-on experience. It is a win-win situation for the animals and people.
Sign this petition and thank Dr. Shorrock for her innovative and heartfelt work. Her efforts are not going unnoticed, and many animals are alive and healthy today because of her work.
Dear Dr. Shorrock,
I recently heard about the amazing work you have done with the Trusty Paws Clinics in Glasgow and London. It is truly inspiring to see someone work so hard to help those who have fallen on difficult times, and the companions that, in many cases, keep them going. Thanks to your clinics, many animals are alive and healthy today.
Not only are your clinics great for homeless pets and their owners, they also offer valuable hands-on experiences for students of veterinary medicine. It is a win-win situation for all involved.
I want to applaud your innovative thinking and compassion. Your hard work does not go unnoticed and is much appreciated. I can only hope more places see what you have created and decide to foster clinics like yours all over the world.
[Your Name Here]
